Need to warm up or cool down? Or maybe you need a refresh for your body to get your focus back… Or maybe you’re just feeling like a gentle, self-love stretch session…
I hear ya!
I don’t know about you but my back and hamstrings are almost always in dire need of some self-love stretching. These simple but effective stretches incorporate these areas perfectly without too much effort PLUS 10 minutes is a sweet spot for stretching; It’s just enough time to provide a gentle opening.
🖐 Wrist Friendly ?? There are no poses where there’s a lot of weight on the wrists, however, there is gripping and grabbing. So if you have tender wrists or hands, be gentle with them.
✨ Inversion Free ?? If you are inversion free — make sure when we lie down, that you prop so your head is the highest point as I did not perform this practice that way.
👉 No props needed, unless you want ‘em. 🌟 Good for ALL Levels. ✨ Inversion Free means no downward facing dog, no head stand, no poses where the head goes below the heart. Great for those with glaucoma, cardiac issues, vertigo, acid reflux, or if you just don’t like going upside down.
Enjoy! Be well.
Remember to breathe.
🙏🏼Namaste my friends🙏🏼
Leg Day Vinyasa Flow #2 uses Yoga and Ballet technique to strengthen the legs in 30 min. This is naturally Inversion Free and supports a weight loss regimen. You’re gonna feel the burn🔥 !
Both isometric (stillness) and isotonic (flex & extend) contraction of the muscles are used in this practice to build strength and endurance.
If this was challenging for you, I recommend doing this practice two times a week until it gets easier.

Enjoy! Be well. Remember to breathe. 🙏🏼Namaste my friends🙏🏼
A NOTE ON “YOGA for WEIGHT LOSS”: Practicing yoga alone is not a weight loss remedy. When used in combination with healthy habits off the mat it can be a great help. Especially to lower stress levels and find a deeper connection with yourself; physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. You can indeed get your heart rate up with some practices, you can sweat, strengthen, tone, detox, and burn calories. To be quite honest, I don’t love using this term, but it’s a VERY high ranking SEO term; meaning people search it A LOT. I’m using it to direct more people to become aware of their mind body connection while working into a healthier lifestyle. 💫
